Stayed just one night but wish it was more. I had an awesome experience. The room was great with a very comfortable bed. The pool was very nice, and the staff including the owner was the absolute best. I would highly recommend the budgetel for a great experience.

My stay at the Budgetel has been wonderful. The facilities are very well maintained, the pool is refreshing and the staff is excellent and nothing but friendly. The location is perfect and staying here has made my transfer to Wilmington a great experience. I would highly recommend this hotel to everyone.

I will preface by saying I have stayed at plenty of cheap/low end hotels and this one might just take the cake. It was Independence Day weekend so I get the jacked up rate, but after taxes this should be closer to $80/night even on the holidays - not the $180/night they were charging. I cannot explain the stains that... More

This was the worst hotel I have ever stayed at!!!!!!! The hotel manager was very rude!!!!!!!!! We arrived at 1pm and I was told that check in was at 1pm. She would not allow us to check in until 3 pm. Not to mention that there was no other people there at 1pm. When we got back at 3 pm... More

The staff was very friendly and accomadating. The location could not be beat, near beaches, restaurants and shopping. Nice room without breaking the bank. You can walk alot of places. Downtown Wilmington very close. I am a single women and I felt very safe.

I don't really know why you would like to stay at this place. I booked it since it was "close" to the Greyhound bus station and I needed to stay somewhere over the night before my bus continued the next day. As I don't have my own car, it's difficult to get around. I walked all the way to downtown,... More

I just registered to Tripadvisor so I could warn people about this place (of course I will also make some reports about the good places we stayed but this one has priority). Stayed in this hotel for one night end of Juli 2014 because all other Hotels or Motels in Wilmington were booked out. Started with the price. The women... More
